NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EUREKA CA
359 AM PDT FRI JUL 31 2015

...ISOLATED DRY THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE ACROSS THE INTERIOR...

.DISCUSSION...INTERIOR LOCATIONS WILL EXPERIENCE ANOTHER HOT
ABOVE NORMAL DAY AS MONSOONAL MOISTURE CONTINUES TO STREAM IN FROM
THE SOUTH. THIS COMBINATION IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE A CONVECTIVE
ENVIRONMENT OVER THE REGION. HOT TEMPS MAY CAUSE ANY RAIN FROM
THUNDERSTORMS TO EVAPORATE BEFORE HITTING THE GROUND. CLOUD COVER
COULD CURTAIL THIS THREAT AND WILL BE MONITORED THROUGH THE DAY.
MOISTURE WILL HELP OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES...BUT WILL ALSO KEEP
OVERNIGHT LOWS A BIT WARMER. CONVECTION WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE INTO
EARLY NEXT WEEK.
